to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public doinain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vaiy country to counti^y. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the

PREFACE. 



Tub SuifTiiift:: ;^uoicty lm& pnuttid u good many 
Yolumea of abstracts of Wills, more or less full, from 
the registries at York, Durham, and Richmond, wliieli 
its members seem to have appreciated. 

There are. however, many wills of Northeni 
persons proved in the Prerogative Court of Canter- 
bury, which are now at SoTiiorset Houee, and a few 
in the Library at Lambeth l*al»oe. 

These till lately havt- not bfen thoroughly 
examined, probably on account of the great labour 
in looking through so mnny manuscript calendars. 
Some few were printed by ('anon Kaiua iu"Testa- 
raenta Eboracensia," * and some short abstracts are 
ill Nicolas' " Testament a Vetuatn," a book which 
came out as long- since as 1826, but which is now 
scarce. 

Fortunately, about fifteen years ago the British 
Record Society undertook the task of bringing out 
a regular index to the Somerset House Wills.

PREFACE. 



Mr. J. Challenor Smith, F.S.A., the then Superia- 
teudent of tlie Literary DepartnieTit., edited the first 
volume, from 1383 to 1558. Two more huve since 
been issued, contiiiiiing the work to 1604. Siuoe then 
it has got on very slowly, but is still progressing. 

This voliune confaine full abstracts of nearly all 
the wills of persons living- iu the counties of York, 
Nottingham, Durham, Nortliumberlaad, Cumberland, 
and Westmorland, comprised in the first volume of 
the index, viz. to 1558. 

There are at Someraet House many will* of 
persons living in London and the Houth, who had 
some connection with the North. These were often 
clerics who had changed iheir liTing:8, and younger 
sons who had left their pateroal homes, probably to 
try and mako their fortunes iu Loudon. They ofteu 
mentioned the places where they vvei'o born, the 
churches wLere their relatives were buried, the 
friends they left behind, and their properties in the 
North. 

As it has been impoaaible to print these in full, 
brief abstracts have been inserted in an Appendix, 
containing the references to the Northern Counties, 
wliicb no doubt mil be of interest to the topof^rapher 
aud genealogist. 

It only remains to say that the early Latin wills 
were copied by Miss Stokes; for the rest the Editor 
is responsible. The iiudergroimd literary room at 
Somertwt House is not an ideal place for copying 
closely- written MSS., particularly in the winter months, 
when tbe electric light is much used, so an occasional 
slip in a proper name may perhaps be excused, 

John Wm. Ct.at.
